Community participation is also known as community engagement or community action. The most basic level is to provide information to individuals or the community about decisions and activities underway − this is a one-way flow of information.

  1. Promote active and representative participation toward enabling all community members to meaningfully influence the decisions that affect their lives.
  2. Engage community members in learning about and understanding community issues, and the economic, social, environmental, political, psychological, and other impacts associated with alternative courses of action.
  3. Work actively to enhance the leadership capacity of community members, leaders, and groups within the community.
  4. Be open to using the full range of action strategies to work toward the long-term sustainability and well- being of the community.
